Two years of consistently blogging has been such a huge accomplishment! I didn’t have any expectations starting this blog- I just wanted to do it as a creative outlet. I love writing, it’s such a passion of mine. I enjoy writing about all sorts of things: my favorite restaurants in the city, my traveling experiences, fashion, product reviews and even sometimes about my personal life.

So to those of you who’ve read and commented on my blog- thank you. I appreciate you stopping by, and taking the time out of your day to read my blog posts. It really does make my day!

I’m almost done with the semester, I wrap things up on the 19th of December, and at this point it really couldn’t come sooner. I’m stressed out- so much to do because it’s the home stretch. So I’m trying to stay on top of all my assignments, so I can pass my classes and graduate next fall. Fingers crossed!!

I think December is going to be an exciting blog month! I have so many ideas planned: Christmas wish list, winter break book list, vacation must-do’s in Maui (because I’m going there in January!!!), and more! So stick around…

I can’t believe it’s been one whole year since I started blogging. It feels so good that I have reached my goal of writing consistently for a year. No matter how busy life got, I made sure I wrote at least 3 blog posts for the month. I actually went back to read my first blog post, which you can read here.

So much has happened since then! I’m in a different place in life…. and thank goodness for growth and change. Some of the obvious changes: I am now twenty-four years old. I am studying at SF State. I am in a new apartment (we moved this past weekend) but still living in the Bay Area. Lola Mae is now 8 years old (insert crying emoji). Fall semester is wrapping up in 3.5 weeks! I can’t even begin to tell you guys how STRESSED out I am about upcoming finals & final grades being posted in January. I really need to get a certain GPA for something exciting coming in the future…. I’ll be sure to fill you in. So for now, school is very stressful!

There have also been other huge changes in my life. But, I’m not ready to dive right in & talk about them yet. But I’m sure you can get the idea:

For those of you who have read my blog, have posted comments on my blog— thank you so much. It means a lot to me. I didn’t do this blog for the views, it’s more of a personal creative outlet. But knowing someone out there reads it, and likes the content makes me happy.


Here’s to year TWO of blogging! Stay tuned.
